- Curator's comments
- The marble block was found above the door of a tomb situated on the Magnesian road in Ephesus, which ran from the Magnesian Gate to the Artemision (Wood 1877, 10). This Publius Terentius Olympus might be the same that is mentioned in a Latin inscription from Ephesus, in honour of the Roman equestrian Iulius Alexander Capito under Trajan (Boerker-Merkelbach, IEphesos 684a).
